That’s the finding of a YouGov poll, which concludes that 13% of all Londoners are ‘totally likely’ to take to the capital’s streets to voice their disgust at the incumbent president, who’s set to be in the country from 3-5 June.
We shouldn’t take that number as read; it’s a weighted poll, which asked 1,015 Londoners in total (albeit across a spectrum of political leanings). Putting a final headcount on major protests can also prove problematic, as recent People’s Vote figures have shown.
Still, Londoners have already made their feelings towards POTUS heard during recent demonstrations, including a massive turnout in July 2018, which witnessed some of the best placards ever committed to cardboard.
Accusations against the 45th President of the United States range from misogyny to racism to inappropriate use of an umbrella. Trump has a 67% negative rating on the YouGov website. Other politicians liked by Trump fans on the site include Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un and Silvio Berlusconi.
She does, you know Donald
We’ve a feeling that some Londonist readers might join in with June’s protest. “Oh bugger! Do we still have the balloon?” wondered one, on news of Trump’s return to our shores — referencing the Trump Baby blimp that was flown next to Parliament.
Beefeaters: your move.
